Permanent Lifting Magnets

MPI Lifting Magnets make moving material easier without deforming or damaging the load. MPI work holding tools are versatile, compact and easy to operate.

They replace ropes, chains, and clamps because of the ability to easily control the magnet and the strong force. MPI Lifting Magnets are permanently magnetized so they do not need electricity to operate. Workpieces are safely loaded and unloaded with the simple on/off lever.

Since they contain high energy neodymium magnets, they offer incredible lifting capacity. For instance, weights range from 0 to 4,400 lbs. The strong, stainless-steel lifting eye clamps the product from the top. This avoids deforming or damaging the load.

Blocks of high-energy neodymium magnetic material power the Lifting Magnets. Using only one hand, the Easy-Switch system activates the magnet On and Off. This saves over 40% of the time.

The magnet switches from On to Off by reversing the blocks. The On position’s reversible block is parallel. This static block produces a concentrated magnetic field. The Off position’s reversible block rotates 180 degrees. This creates a total magnetic short circuit.

Permanent Lifting Magnets raise steel plates, bars, blocks, press molds. They assist in loading and unloading machines during the handling operation. Steel mills, scrap yards, and foundries use Lifting Magnets as well as warehouses, loading docks, shipyards, coil and pipe distributors.

Our Lifting Magnets fit round bar, pipe, and flat plates. They have a high lift capacity but are low weight. As a result, they provide extraordinary strength in a compact size. This also ensures safety and speed for lifting heavy loads.

Flat lift magnets are available in six models with ratings of 330, 660, 1,320, 2,200, 3,300 and 4,400 lbs. Round lift ratings are approximately 50% of the flat ratings.

For safety, the actual breakaway force is 3+ times greater than the maximum flat lift ratings. The load limits shown above are for AISI 1020 steel.

Please refer to the lifting chart for exact capacities based on size and surface finish.

How Permanent Lifting Magnets Work:

Our lift magnets utilize high energy Neodymium magnets offer tremendous lifting capacity when handling flat, round and cylindrical material. The Easy Switch system activates the magnet On and Off simply  using just one hand with a significant time savings! The lifting magnet’s stainless steel robust lifting eye clamps product from the top without deforming or damaging the load.
